This flow chart can be used in many ways to strengthen student understanding of matter and its three states.- Print as a large anchor poster for quick student reference- Print small to fit in student science notebooks- Print one of the three flow charts that have some or all parts missing to use as scaffolded notes or as an assessment.
This 27-page science mini-book was created to help teach the Next Generation Science Standards for 2nd grade in structure and properties of matter. It covers the following principles: what is matter, different states of matter, how matter can change, reversing states of matter, and observable properties of matter.
This is a great interactive activity from BBC, which allows students to discover what changes occur in different sources of matter–solid, liquids, and gas–when interacted with heat. The game explains how gas is created from heating liquid, and liquid is created from cooling gas. The game has students identify the solids, liquids, and gases through sorting different sources of matter. There is then a quiz at the end to assess the students knowledge.
States of Matter: Solids, Liquids, and Gases Study Guide Outline - Characteristics of Matter - King Virtue's Classroom Starting your unit on Matter? Help your students get off to a great start with this simple study guide outline. This is a great tool that can be used to inform your parents about what their children will be learning about the three states of matter (solid, liquid, and gas) and the characteristics of each phase.
